Python package for retrieving Eikon data.

Project description

The Eikon Data API for Python allows your Python applications to access data directly from Eikon or Refinitv Workspace, powering in-house or thirdparty desktop apps with Refinitiv data. It provides seamless workflow with the same data across all applications running on the desktop. It leverages Eikon data and entitlements to simplify market data management and reporting. The Eikon Data API for Python is a software library that works in conjunction with the Eikon desktop application and [Refinitiv Workspace] (https://www.refinitiv.com/en/products/refinitiv-workspace-wealth).

Some examples

Import Eikon and set your App Key

import eikon as ek

ek.set_app_key('8e9bxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx1b035d')

Get Real-time Snapshots

df, err = ek.get_data(
    instruments = ['GOOG.O','MSFT.O', 'FB.O'],
    fields = ['BID','ASK']
)
display(df)
  Instrument BID ASK
0 GOOG.O 1350.48 1352.19
1 MSFT.O 152.38 152.40
2 FB.O 203.08 203.15

Get Real-time Streaming data

streaming_prices = ek.StreamingPrices(
    instruments = ['EUR=', 'GBP=', 'JPY=', 'CAD='],
    fields = ['DSPLY_NAME', 'BID', 'ASK'],
    on_update = lambda streaming_price, instrument_name, fields :
        print("Update received for {}: {}".format(instrument_name, fields))
)

streaming_prices.open()

Output:

<StreamState.Open: 3>
